Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Daewoo Propane Forklifts

Change a Propane Tank
Propane powered forklifts are normally used in warehouses. The forklift is made with the propane tank mounted at the back of the operator. The tanks, which look much like beer kegs, need to be replaced from time to time as they have a limited lifespan. Forklift operators should always utilize care when handling propane tanks. Compressed gases are really dangerous, particularly since the gas is flammable. Always utilize care when replacing and removing propane tank to avoid injury.

1 If there is a need to replace the propane tank, the first step is to stop the lift truck, then turn off the tank valve. The forklift should be left on until the engine dies. This procedure burns the gas off in the transfer hose that connects the engine and the tank. Prior to taking the next steps, wear the correct safety equipment, like for instance insulated gloves made of either neoprene or leather. It is vital for you to protect your skin from touching the compressed gas, that is very cold.
2 Disconnect the hose from the tank and take the holding straps off to remove the tank. When putting in a new tank, tighten the nut to reattach the holding straps and to reattach the hose at the valve of the tank.
3 You could check for leaks by applying soapy water to the valve and slightly opening it. Leaking gas will cause bubbles to foam around the value. If this happens, inspect the connection hose at the nut and the valve area. Re-tighten the connecting nut if you detect any leaks around the valve area, and afterward perform the leak checking process once more. Persistent leaks mean that the nut and connecting hose should be replaced. Nevertheless, if replacing the nut and hose still does not stop the leak, the tank must be replaced.
4 Open the valve all the way to enable the gas to fill the connecting hose. Afterward you can start the forklift and continue operating.
